Cragganmore Distillery, Speyside, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on Cragganmore Distillery which is located in Ballindalloch, Speyside, Scotland.

Since 1965 Cragganmore has been part of the Diageo international drinks group. However, the distillery has a much longer history, having been first established in 1869  by John Smith who ran nearby Glenfarclas Distillery. The Smith family retained control through to 1923 when it was sold into third-party corporate ownership and a direct link with the White Horse brand.

Today, the distillery is equipped with:

  • A 6.8 tonnes stainless steel full lauter mash tun.
  • Six washbacks made from Oregon pine.
  • Two pairs of stills.

Capacity is 2.2m litres per annum.

Principal product is a 12-year-old single malt which is one of Diageo’s Classic Malts range. Other releases include a 25 year-old. Cragganmore malt also contributes to the White Horse and Old Parr blends.

Tours of the distillery are available but photography restricted.
